bigMobility is all around us – more Indians are using (smart)phones than PCs. More of us are consuming apps than ever
Ecommerce companies are witnessing growing number of transactions happening over the phone.
There is a challenge.
The local app developer ecosystem hasn’t matured enough (users have, app developers/entrepreneurs aren’t yet producing great products). Importantly, very few indie desi developers/entrepreneurs have managed to made it to the slots in the (Indian) app store.
Apps have a lot of local appeal (smartphones are more context-aware/users want to consume micro-content) and that’s the big opportunity that lies ahead for app developers.
Do we have a technology problem to solve? We believe that there are enough technology forums (local/global) that talk technology.
The Real Problem
Is of uncomfortable topics questions and debates
‘When you are the smartest guy (or girl) in the room, you should just leave the room” [an interesting PoV by a fellow entrepreneur, Prashant Singh]
Most of the app developers are NOT leaving the room. They are enjoying the <X> download numbers, which compare nothing with global counterparts.
What’s lacking is not the tech mindset – but growth mindset.
And that’s what we want to build at bigMobilityConf : Get entrepreneurs/developers to start asking tough questions/debate and share stuff. Grow together, because the earlier approach hasn’t really worked.
And Grow Beyond the OS Religions/Debates. Beyond ‘mine is bigger than yours’ syndrome (download numbers, obviously).
We defintely look forward to the upcoming bigMobilityConf which is a step towards realizing a goal of enabling successful mobility ventures.
